Vipassana means to see clearly, to see through, to see the true nature of reality. The benefits of Vipassana meditation are widely known. Many people come to me saying that they’d like to try it but can’t seem to make the time. I agree that there is a minimal amount of time that must be invested in order to learn the basic techniques of Vipassana meditation. However, after that initial investment, the time commitment is entirely up to the student. Since it only takes one moment to come back into the present, one moment of time is actually all that’s needed in order to practice Vipassana, to see the true nature of reality. That’s why I encourage you to make that initial time investment of 1 hour, 1 day, 3 days or 2 weeks in order to train yourself in the basic techniques of Vipassana meditation (training to be in the present moment) so that the time commitment in the future doesn’t have to be so daunting. Once the tools are in place, one moment is actually all that’s needed to practice Vipassana.
